      @L John Hi - if you don't care about the food safe aspect of the ink, then just go search out auto vinyl wrap, or 3M wrap. There are wood patterns, and various gloss finishes. I used auto vinyl for a refrigerator, worked great. The granite pattern for countertops held up ok, but after two years there is a dulling of the finish in some areas (likely what I cleaned it with). Still better than almond formica!

    What is the name of this stuff? I don't think I saw it mentioned anywhere. I can't buy it if I don't know what to ask for.

    Has anyone using it had to deal with an "L" shaped countertop? How do you deal with the 90 degree turn?
